Christ: Last Judgment -- Christ, crossed nimbus, arms extended, His body partially draped, showing bleeding wounds, sits with feet on globe. He is flanked by: half figures of two angels blowing slightly curved trumpets; by one female with joined hands and three male saints one with joined hands, all nimbed; and by Virgin Mary and John Baptist, both nimbed with joined hands. Below five bodies emerge from graves, one tonsured man, one woman, one orant, two with joined hands and two with joined hands raised.
